The Future of Tech Policy: Conversations with Gallup and Knight Foundation

Join Gallup and Knight Foundation for a webinar rooted in new research, and focused on the future of tech policy.

Watch the recording: Free expression vs. misinformation online: Who decides?

How do Americans weigh a core value like free expression against the downsides that come with harmful content and misinformation online? A new report by Knight Foundation and Gallup explores attitudes toward key issues in tech policy, including content moderation, Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, and approaches to industry self-governance like Facebook’s Oversight Board. This new study provides a springboard for tech companies, government and citizens alike to advance a conversation about free expression online.

Watch the Recording: Techlash/Tech Policy: A Look at What’s Next with Federal Trade Commissioner Rohit Chopra

How deep is the “techlash” in America, and what are its implications on the future of policy and society?

New research from Gallup and Knight Foundation finds a deep concern across the political spectrum about big tech – including the spread of misinformation, privacy, data security and the role of governments in regulating the perceived excesses of tech companies. While COVID-19 has muted the debate, the issues, and federal investigations into them, continue.

Watch Federal Trade Commissioner Rohit Chopra and Knight Foundation Senior Vice President and Chief Program Office Sam Gill take on the topic.
